Polishing Iceland is a physical theatre performance conceived and directed by Pálína Jónsdóttir, based on an autobiographical short story collection by Polish author Ewa Marcinek. The play explores the experience of a Polish immigrant finding her way in Iceland. Pálína Jónsdóttir’s direction turns confusion into comedy, fear into action. Through sensual and surreal physical theatre, Polishing Iceland conveys a universal story about looking for human connection and understanding beyond words.
The production features humorous and deeply touching narration with translingual dialogues in English, Icelandic, and Polish. ​​​​​​​
